President John Mahama has asked Ghanaians to be tolerant of one another’s faith as it will enhance the nation's development.
Speaking at a breakfast meeting at the castle with a selection of the nation's Christian leaders on Wednesday, the President charged them to continue praying for the country ahead of the December polls.
According to him, “we all are the same in Christiandom, it doesn’t matter what denomination we go to. For us there is one binding faith and that is our love for God and our recognition for God as the Almighty and the creator. And so that is why I think that we should bond together and continue to work together.
President Mahama mentioned that he will continue to rely on the various religious leaders for good counsel.
"As long as I’m in leadership, because I think it is important to be guided by the faith and to put God in leadership so that he guides your step in the direction that you need to go.”
He described the death of the late former Vice President, Alhaji Aliu Mahama as “a cruel climax to what has been a generally sorrowful year and I know that our religious leaders are interceding on behalf of this nation. I guess that this one too is for good.”
“I think that everything that happens, happens for a reason and God is in control of what happens. Probably, worst things could have happened but he intercedes and and looks after us. And so we have to continue to pray to him for his intercession in order that his favour will continue to be on Ghana,” he noted.
